Transportation and logistics giant UPS has expanded its package pickup and delivery operations with the opening of a high-speed sortation center in New Castle, Delaware, the company said this week. The facility adds about 70% more package processing power to support growing demand in New Castle County and across the state, UPS also said.
The new package center features highly automated technology that speeds the scanning and sorting process while allowing UPS to capture data to increase delivery accuracy, the company said. The center is part of a multi-year strategic investment plan to grow UPS's global smart logistics network.
"This new UPS® facility will provide additional pickup and delivery services to our customers in Delaware so they can focus on growing their business, while meeting their customers' demands for speed and reliability," Trayce Parker, president of UPS's Chesapeake District, said in a statement. "We are excited to bring more good paying full- and part-time jobs to the New Castle area, as UPS expands our presence as a partner in the community."
